Jonathan Kalinowski PHIL 202 Professor Fisher November 6, 2007 1) What are the four general kinds of agreement or disagreement that Locke discusses in Bk. IV, Ch. I? How is each involved in our knowledge? The four general kinds of agreement or disagreement that Locke discusses are identity, relation, coexistence and finally real existence. When Locke discusses identity, he discusses the mind and its product: ideas. His logic is almost redundant when he says, “It is the first act of the mind, when it has any sentiments or ideas at all, to perceive its ideas; and so far as it perceives them, to know each what it is, and in this way also to perceive their difference and that one is not another” (338). Locke means that any one idea is identified by itself only, and cannot be another idea since it is itself. Locke discusses further that the identity of ideas form the platform upon which the rest of knowledge is built on. He says the distinction between ideas allows us to form knowledge.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
